One of my goals in 2009 is to eliminate my phobia of using Wordpress. I'm still struggling with customizing how to put my ads/adsense/banner/ebook cover on the theme. It seems like I always have to deal with the codes (which I always screw up). So far, I've not been able to find anything that is truly WYSIWYG plugin for me to use on customizing a WP theme.
I hope some of you warriors will be able to help point out some tips to me, especially on how to insert an affiliate banner/logo on the header as well as cloaking affiliate links.
